, not helping president obama or mitt romney. so they have to be contentious toward the guy at the top. >> one thing that hasn't been talked about so far is poor people. one of the things -- we talk about the middle class being destroyed. it's important that we remember that paul ryan actually has something to say about poor people. he wants to take away nutritionaprograms, i think if you want to talk about what's happening in scranton, what will help people in scranton is not what paul ryan is talking about. >> the debate is about to start. wolf? >> only a few seconds away from the start of the debate. a 42-year-old republican vice presidential nominee, a 69-year-old sitting vice president of the united states. two very, very different men. they've both been preparing almost nonstop the last few days, but preparing for weeks and weeks and weeks. paul ryan making it clear that he's gone through a tunnel of issues. and the vice president wants to make sure he doesn't have one of those gaffes that have plagued him over the years. both of these candidates, they are ready, they're getting ready to
